An Average Joe

Extracts from this document...


An Average Joe Sulaimaan was a normal teenager like the rest of the boys at school. He played worked and mucked around as much as the other kids do. He had ambitions such as wanting to be an astronaut and dreamed that he had super powers or wanted to become like his favorite super hero Superman. This was a stage that every goes through. He enjoyed school spending time with his friends and playing football in the field. All of is friends claimed that he was an easy character to figure out and that they knew him inside out. One of the main problems he used to face at school was teacher called Mr. Slade. He was the House master of Murray (the house which Sulaimaan was put in) Mr. Slade never really liked Sulaimaan in the beginning and kept finding more and more reasons not to. Sulaimaan had a downside, at school it was his lateness in the mornings which was usually caused by his sisters doing their hair in the morning, this always got him into trouble. This was one small reason Slade didn't like him. Another one was the fact that he wasn't scared to speak up to him. Unlike any other pupil in Murray, Sulaimaan knew what to take and what not to take from Mr. Slade and when he went over the line Sulaimaan wasn't to afraid to put him in his place. ...read more.


He slowly introduced his other side first telling his closer friends about the companies he owns and the products he sells. Some of his closer friends believed him immediately however this was not the case for everyone. This was an amusing factor for most people and they simply kept asking for proof and saying it isn't your company but your fathers. Sulaimaan impressed those people with his business terminology however that was not enough. They needed hard proof. This is when he showed them his database and site control panel. Slowly this news spread throughout the year group. It was time to target the teachers. This was a much harder task and required pre planning. How would he introduce it and When? Those were the key questions that buzzed through his head as he passed day by day. It was at his DT lesson with Mr. Barnes (His form tutor) where he was discussing the site and showing his friends/potential customers. Whilst the wow factor grew Mr. Barnes looked over and started enquiring about what was going on. He came over and saw what was on his screen. At first there was an angry look on his face until Sulaimaan showed that he had completed the task set in class and the one for prep. Mr. Barnes asked "What is this?" Sulaimaan explained "Sir I was just showing them Gadget-Crazy my online internet based business which I started in November 2005". ...read more.


Slade straight. They thought he was a scared character who would take anything from anyone. That was the last time Mr. Slade ever pestered Sulaimaan again. When Sulaimaan went to his math's lesson he realized that the word had spread and he had spent most of the lesson asking the teachers questions about Gadget-Crazy and his other companies as well as himself. It had turned out better then expected. Most of his business lessons had come from his father who trained him into what he is today. He is your one stop business shop. He has all the necessary qualifications and experience. Trained to build companies and improve. He released part of what is capabilities were but not all as this would simply result in people thinking he talked too much and simply couldn't do any of it. Most teachers would think what does he know, he is only 14! Most people think business is easy and once you have one your making instant money however that is not the case. Getting the company is easy however maintaining it day in and day out is the hard task. Sulaimaan didn't make his money straight away. It took time effort and a lot of hard work and dedication. He believed in what he was doing and made it possible. He made it happen. If you don't have passion for something you might as well give up. You think you know someone? Think again...... ...read more.
